This particular rev of the PARISC is still 32 bit. The 64 bit machines
did not come until later. The performance sounds about right.

Your HSC-bus peripherals are better than your HPPB. HP had a habit of
making peripherals for the precision bus which could not run at full
speed. The 100Mb ethernet comes to mind as one.
